This was one of my favorite tours as far as 80's material is concerned. This was not a very diverse set when you consider that almost half of the songs were taken from 3 discs (5 from Presto, 3 from Hold Your Fire and 3 from Power Windows). There were a lot of unhappy fans that wanted to hear more 70's material, but I thought the set list was great. Manhattan Project was so good live. I don't think they have played it since this tour. They played Marathon this year so maybe there is hope that they might bring back Manhattan Project next year. The Presto material all sounded really good. The Pass, War Paint and Show Don't Tell were my favorites from that disc. This was only my second Rush show, so it was the first time I got to see Red Barchetta. That was an amazing experience! It was also my first time seeing Freewill and Xanadu. I thought In The Mood was a cool way to close the show, but this would be the last tour that it was played. Great show.
The world weighs on my shoulders but what am I to do?
